Reading the paper of Deep Adaptation and realized that they are saying exactly the same shit that anarchists have been telling the world for decades. Moreover, Deep Adaptation literally calling for liberal solutions, such as shutting down power plant with government authority, ironically while basically the whole topic is saying that the end is nigh and doing something ain't working.
Desert was written almost a decade ago (2011), with detailed points and examples that the world is fucked beyond fixing, but also pointed out the exact problems of mass movement and anarchist's so-called progress. It predicted movements like Earth Strike and Extinction Rebellion doing absolutely nothing, and that the entire left movement was built upon the delusion of hope.
Given our obvious inability to re-make the entire world the way we might like it to be, some replace the myth of ‘global revolution’ with a belief in imminent ‘global collapse’ — these days usually some mix of climate change and peak oil. As we shall see later (both in the next chapters and our future years) global heating will severely challenge civilisation in some areas and probably vanquish it in others. Yet in some regions it will likely open up possibilities for the spread of civilisations rule. Some lands may remain (relatively) temperate — climatically and socially. As for civilisation, so for anarchy and anarchists — severely challenged, sometimes vanquished; possibilities for liberty and wildness opening up, possibilities for liberty and wildness closing. The unevenness of the present will be made more so. There is no global future.
